Matured in traditional oak vats, Old Rosie is a dry, still and cloudy cider, much like a traditional scrumpy but lightly sparkling, and currently produced with an alcohol strength of 7.3% ABV. It is best served chilled (as stated on the back of every bottle) and can be purchased in traditionally-shaped 2 litre glass jars, 500ml bottles or occasionally on draught.
The company was formed in 1880, in Herefordshire, a county known for growing apples and pears suitable for cider and perry. Over the years, the company have produced many different types of cider and scrumpy, including Stowford Press, Special Vintage and Old Rosie. Westons only use apples that are grown within a fifteen mile radius of their mill.
